“It’s hard to imagine timing for a female-led movie that would be more appropriate than now, when a spec script has already been penned by the writer of a wildly successful recent movie (Guardians, might I add, was the first Marvel Film ever to have a 40% female audience). But to hear Feige tell it, producing Black Widow involves consulting the stars, measuring one’s body temperature, and waiting for a flock of doves to roost on Marvel’s lawn and pronounce the world “ready.” But y’all don’t need a Farmers Almanac: the right time for a female-led movie was yesterday, regardless of Marvel’s plans for the “right story.” If women had the representation we deserve in movies overall, Feige’s call for patience would have been identified as procrastination long ago–and if Marvel’s plate isn’t big enough to handle that, then something is fundamentally broken.”

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

i just don’t understand the people that are trying to claim that haru suddenly wanting to swim again doesn’t make sense/people saying haru’s anxiety re: going pro was due to haru not wanting to swim

uh, no. when someone really really loves something, when it means something to them (and we can all agree swimming means the fucking world to nanase haruka), it means that sometimes when they’re faced with doing that thing they love, there’s so much more riding on it. they’re 10 times more invested and as a result they have so much more to lose.

This explains that anxiety so well!  The reason why the way they’ve handled Haru’s anxiety rings really true to me is because I’ve been through a similar thing with singing.  I got a lot of expectations about being able to sing well and pressure to perform.  It got so bad that anxiety started effecting my auditions; my voice would quaver, my breath support fell through, and my voice would literally freeze up.  It was awful.  So I guess I really connected with his struggle.  I’m glad he found a way to pursue his passion.  Sometimes I still wish I had.

“It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.”
